Subject: Review by Doctor John of The Tales of the RIC
HI
I have the fourth impression of this work published by William Blackwood
and son in 1921. I am pleased to see you have a copy in your archives.
I have carried out some research on these stories which I believe were written by a serving officer in Ireland around 1919
shortly before Partition.
The places he mentioned in Connemara and the west of Ireland are fictitious lending more credence to him being a serving officer
and that it was written by an unnamed author completes my theory.
This book is a part of the history of Ireland and should be protected for generations to come.
To my knowledge there are only two other copies still in existence one in Edinburgh and mine which is well read and although I take great care of it, it is showing signs of wear. These stories portray life in Ireland and the effect on the population after th Easter uprising of 1916 and prior to the Partition of Ireland in 1920
To keep the RIC still in the minds of the populace of Ireland I have narrated some of the happenings in short story form with the intention of engendering some of the younger generation to look at this outstanding and very courageous police force and the members loyalty and devotion of duty as it policed a most dangerous situation.
